Senso by Luchino Visconti ( Visual )

In Venice, during the spring of 1866, it is the last month of the Austrian occupation of the Veneto. The Italian government has forged a pact with Prussia, and another war of liberation in the ongoing Risorgimento is imminent. Countess Livia Serpieri, unloved by her collaborator-husband but sympathetic to the cause of freedom espoused by her patriotic cousin Roberto, meets Austrian officer Franz Mahler as she begs him to call off a duel with Roberto. She falls in love with young, philandering, and mercenary officer, the country marches to revolution, and her dedication to the cause wilts under her desire and obsession. Mesmerized by him, she betrays not only her husband and cousin, but the revolution, too, with tragic results
Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti ( Visual )
32 editions published between 1960 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rocco chronicles the tensions within a southern family - a mother and her five sons - who have moved to a northern Italian city. The drama unfolds in a series of episodes merging into each other in which each of the five sons moves in turn to occupy the centre of the stage. Nowell-Smith suggests that each brother, in a sense, represents a certain kind of solution to the problems faced by a southern immigrant family in this historical moment (the 1950s in Milan) yet they are not typical

Il mio viaggio in Italia ( Visual )
5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Italian and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
My Voyage to Italy is a warm and loving look at the power of movies, ideal for fans of Italian cinema and Martin Scorsese. Scorsese brings an infectious enthusiasm to his recollections of watching neorealist and epic Italian films on television, and to his examination of the masters of Italian neorealism: Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio De Sica, Luchino Visconti, Federico Fellini, and Michelangelo Antonioni. While offering a solid postwar timeline, basic information about the intellectual movements that influenced Italian filmmakers, and close readings of key films, the subject of the documentary is less about Italian cinema than Scorsese's passion for Italian cinema, especially the movies that made him fall in love with moviemaking. Viewers seeking a primer on Italian cinema may be disappointed, while those familiar with both Italian cinema and Scorsese's films will find much to enjoy

The job itself is foolproof, so how do these bungling small-timers pull off the greatest heist of their careers without killing each other?
